More Personal than the dating websites. More Resources than all your friends combined. More methodical than your mother. Better odds than the bar scene.

(And a track record to prove it all.)

What is Philanthrodating™

Conversations among singles have shifted recently, in line with national trends: people want to find someone else who is making a difference in the world.

The traditional check list of financial security, religious affiliation, and political affiliation are important to many singles, but philanthropy is making a rise on the list too. So Carolinas Matchmaker decided to pair generosity and dating to create Philanthrodating™.

The mixers are singles events where people can meet others who value charitable giving and volunteer work. Volunteerism is a lifestyle choice. Being able to step outside yourself and help others through donating money or your time creates a certain type of individual. Many people with philanthropy in their DNA want their life partner to have the same mindset they do.

Attendance has grown exponentially since the first Philanthrodating™ event November 2016. And it makes sense, the Charlotte Metro region ranks ninth in the country for charitable giving, donating about 3.4% of their income to charity. Nearly 47% of millennials volunteered for a cause or nonprofit in the past month.
